I took my family on this when they visited from the UK as based on the Marina where I was staying at the time. A couple of options and routes available that will please most. We took a trip around the palm island and partially through the Marina itself.

I took the front row Yellow Boats ride on the morning of 13th August 2014 along with my relatives from USA.

Really enjoyed our 75mins tour around the palm. Cooling breeze from speed boat was lovely! Only takes about 12 people so a nice friendly tour. Waitrose shop just by the boat stop! Buy ice cream here!
